There will be two components to the seminar: classroom sessions and a "laboratory" in the form of a structured training program. The classroom component will introduce the students to the chemistry of their own biological system. With swimming, running and cycling as sample sports, students are encouraged to apply their knowledge to complete a triathlon shortly after the term.

This course is a survey of perceptual and cognitive aspects of the psychology of music, with special emphasis on underlying neuronal and neurocomputational representations and mechanisms. Basic perceptual dimensions of hearing (pitch, timbre, consonance/roughness, loudness, auditory grouping) form salient qualities, contrasts, patterns and streams that are used in music to convey melody, harmony, rhythm and separate voices...
Keywords: music perception; music cognition; music memory; pitch; timbre; consonance; harmony; tonality; melody; expressive timing; rhythmic hierarchies; auditory perception; auditory pathway; musical acoustics; power spectra; psychophysics; neurocomputational models; neural correlates; music therapy; synesthesia; absolute pitch
